Minsk for participation in the Eastern Partnership, Russia and Turkey

This was stated at the conference "Eastern Partnership" in Warsaw, Consul of Belarus to Poland Andrei Lazavik.

The conference was devoted to the theme "Where are we? Post-Communist and post-Soviet countries in the last 20 years."

In the event attended About 200 people — responsible representatives of the foreign ministries of the participating countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus), as well as diplomats and leading politicians and public figures in Eastern and Western Europe and the United States.

The meeting participants discussed projects aimed at political, economic and legal convergence of six post-Soviet republics with the EU. To do this, Brussels has to spend up to 2013 at least 600 million euros.

As the Belarusian diplomat Andrei Sannikov, the need to participate in the projects of the "Partnership" countries such as Russia and Turkey — is obvious. It is, for example, the project "Viking", which aims — kanteynernyya rail freight from the ports of the Baltic to the Black Sea via Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine. Previously, calling for Turkey to become a partner in the project addressed the Minister of Transport of Lithuania Eligius Masiulis.

According to Andrew Lazavik a very important role in the current integration process is the revival of ancient waterway linking the Black Sea and the Baltic Seas, including the Dnieper — Vistula — Oder.

The conference heard proposals to increase the budget of the "Partnership". As noted in a speech the deputy head of the Polish Foreign Ministry She Borkowski, "the process of strengthening cooperation with its eastern neighbors can only be accelerated by increasing the amount of resources. Without proper position in the EU budget for 2014-2020 full achievement of the objectives of the program is not possible."

According to Borkowski, during its EU presidency in the second half 2011and Poland as one of the initiators of the "Eastern Partnership" will seek to increase funding for the program.
